It is not an act of provocation to patrol international waters.
A little of topic but how come that RAF saw a Russian bomber formation patroling in northern Antlantic international airspace as a threat or some could say an act of provocation? After all they send their war planes to "intercept" or shadow them. Same happened with iranian gun boats. They we goofing off and making americans nervous.
I see no difference between this indicents and an indicent that we are discussing.
PS. I personally don't believe this "you will explode" crap.

The Cole was attacked while docked in a friendly country. What does that have to do with this current incident?

International waters? What has that to do with anything, the US is figthing an illegal war/occupation in Iraq and in a few months they will be in Iran all at the behest of their Israeli masters. What A joke all those patriotic Americans quaking in their boots over a few Iranians and their rag tag navy.
